Reviews:

1/This was an interesting book, and I quite enjoyed the storyline, mystery and characters. I am unsure of how I feel about Gemma and her friends as they continuously make poor and selfish decisions. It is a fun look into the late 1800’s and the society that Ms. Bray has created.

2/I read this book 12 years ago! The trilogy has been one of my favorites. I’m now knocking on 30! I order the books again. I still can’t put them down. They are thrilling, majestic, and dark. These books wrap you into the story, you feel the characters desires, wants, insecurities and fears. Must read. After you read it listen to the audiobooks! You will become one with the world and characters created!!

3/I’m surprised I waited so long to read this novel. After I finished reading, I ran out to get the rest of the series. A Great and Terrible Beauty has the burden of being first in the series. The premise is incredibly interesting, the writing is beautiful and engaging, but there are a lot of loose ends that weren’t fully explored. But I can’t wait to see how the story unfolds in the next two installments.

I enjoyed all the characters – each had their own uniqueness to them and some even had a mysterious side to them. Gemma Doyle is not your typical 16 year old. Most girls her age were brought up in London’s society of gossip and lavish balls, but Gemma had an unconventional upbringing in India. She yearns to go to London, which becomes reality after a vision she has of her mother’s death comes true.

Libba Bray’s detailed description of “the realms” allowed me to visualize the place in my mind and I absolutely love that quality in a book. When Gemma and her friends find a doorway the another realm, they start their own club, The Order, and soon find themselves embarking on several adventures.

The storyline kept me hungry for more. I loved Bray’s take on the 19th century’s society, sexuality, and even teen issues that aren’t all that different from the one’s we face today. Yet the supernatural element takes A Great and Terrible Beauty to a whole other level of enjoyment.
